With this shake, cherries are just the start to an over-the-top showstopper. This shake isn’t joking around when it comes to flavors and toppings. We won’t judge you if you don’t want to share, and we promise not to tell your dentist. 

PREP TIME: 15 minutes   |   YIELD: 2 servings 




  • 2 c. vanilla ice cream (about 2 scoops) 
  • 1 c. frozen cherries 
  • 1 c. whole milk 
  • 1/8 tsp. salt


  • 1 c. frozen cherries 
  • 2 tbsp. sugar 
  • 1 tbsp. water


  • 2 ice cream cones 
  • 2 strawberry iced donuts 
  • 2 mini glazed donuts or donut holes 
  • 2 chocolate-covered pretzel sticks 
  • 2 Oreos 
  • Whipped cream 
  • Vanilla icing 
  • Mini marshmallows


  1. To make the topping, combine 1 cup frozen cherries, sugar and water in a small saucepan. Cook over a low flame, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Remove from the heat once the mixture reaches jam consistency, about 10 minutes.
  2. For the milkshake, combine ice cream, remaining cherries, milk and salt in a blender. Blend on medium to combine. If needed, add a bit more milk to achieve the desired consistency.
  3. Coat the rim of each glass with vanilla icing and roll in a bowl of mini marshmallows.
  4. Divide milkshake among glasses and top with cherry topping.
  5. Place a strawberry iced donut on each shake. Use vanilla icing to attach ice cream cone. Add whipped cream on top of the strawberry iced donut and add one mini donut to the middle of each. Top off with an Oreo cookie and chocolate-covered pretzel. Take a moment to admire, then enjoy the sugar rush!
